What is pointless, is a comment like that, on a thread that is more than a year old, for your FIRST post here.

.264 is 6.7mm caliber .257 is 6.5mm caliber while .284 is 7.2mm caliber.
Why use the caliber with the worst bullet selection.

btw the 6.5x68 is really a nice cartridge.
Capacity of about 80gr of water afair, no belt, extremely sturdy high quality rws brass that lasts a lifetime when annealed regularly and all the speed you may want.
The standard reamer might be set up for long round nosed bullets, you should check that.
